i am a big fan of dosa recipes and it is a must meal for my morning breakfast in most of the days. having said that i personally like the crisp and roasted dosa recipes like masala dosa or rava dosa. but my husband like the soft and spongy dosa particularly set dosa or poha dosa. as a matter of fact, during his early career days, he used to have breakfast in one of the bangalore mess, and he developed the taste for it over there. he likes it when it is served with a big scoop of butter, coconut chutney and vegetable saagu. i like my dosa with simple chutney and lentil-based sambar and that how we eat in my home town udupi. but the bangalore style is to serve it with kurma and soft or sponge dosa is ideal for it.

anyway, before concluding the post, i would like to highlight some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect set dosa recipe. firstly, i have used the idli rice for this recipe which yields the soft and spongy dosa. yet you can use other rice variants like sona masuri and you should be getting the same result. secondly, the fermentation is the key for having soft, spongy and lite set dose recipe. if you are living in a cold and dry place, use the preheated oven or you can use daylight. lastly, once the dosa batter is fermented and once the salt is added, do not let it ferment. to stop the fermentation you can place the batter in fridge to preserve it.
